The Yakima Family YMCA has provided youngsters the opportunity to experience independence and the great outdoors for nearly three quarters of a century at Camp Dudley - located just a few miles outside of Yakima on the shores of beautiful Clear Lake near White Pass.

For the last eight years or so, the camp has tried to raise funds to give children who cannot afford to go the opportunity to attend by offering scholarships paid with monies raised from their annual used book sale.

This year's sale kicked-off last Saturday and will continue through tomorrow (Jan. 21st). The sale continues today and tomorrow from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. next to Ron's Coin and Book at 8 No. 3rd St. in downtown Yakima.

Soft-cover books are just $.75 and hard bound are $1.50 apiece. If you have old books you would like to get rid of and help a neat cause, you may drop them off at the afforestation location.
